"- Most exciting for me, he mentioned that there are several unheard Dark Stars in the Vault from '68 & "possibly '69." I think he knows what's circulating, so even a vague mention that there are more mid-'68 shows in the Vault is quite tantalizing."

Now these are the kinds of things I live to hear. I'm pretty sure they're sitting on a lot of stuff from '69, but the thought of 68 as well? Nice.

The exact wording, vague as it is...

Q: "Any good unheard Dark Star performances I can look forward to?"
DL: "Yeah, many, so stay tuned. There actually aren't too many - I think you've probably heard a lot of the Dark Stars that we have; but there definitely are some Dark Stars from '68, possibly '69, that you might not know or be too familiar with. It's the '68 ones that I find really interesting....that transitional era for Dark Star, from February '68 to October '68, we don't have a lot, but we do have some cool things, that personally I would like to see some more [released] - that's one of my favorite eras."

I would have expected him to say something like, "we have a bunch from '69 but they're in poor cassette quality, not up to release standards etc" - but instead he refers to precisely the era in mid-'68 where we have few shows circulating. The shows from August or October are quite well-known, so I don't think he's referring to those.
Definitely raises hopes that they have more stray '68 reels like the 6/14/68 one they put on the Fillmore West bonus disc - although, chances of CD release for obscure/unknown '68 shows must be very slim. They'd probably do 10/12/68 (which he refers to a couple times in the chat) instead - they've mostly tended to release already-famous shows lately.

It's true. Only saw them on TV at the time, and hated it.
